I promised to load the rest of the pictures last night, but we had some really bad thunderstorms and decided to stay off the computer in case the electric went out. We did learn to always have a battery backup for your computer though. That way you can shut it down correctly.
So where were we... oh yes complaining about my laundry/bathroom. Looking straight in the room I have a window. Not just any old window, but a BIG window at the far side of the room. Nothing like sitting on the toilet contemplating life looking out the window at nature while nature calls. Oh did I forget to mention that if you have people over on the back deck they can look in and see you minding your own business. And of course the stand up shower is right there too. Do you see why this is the man bathrom? Most men would care less if anyone saw them. Now in defense we don't have real close neighbors and it is in the back of the house, but still shades come closed when people are visiting.
Working our way back toward the door is the toilet and sink area. Now I don't know about you or if you have done this so please bare with me. Please don't ever spray paint a bathroom vanity with black flat spray paint. Every drip mark or water shows on that thing. Now I love the black as a matter of fact I had painted the last vanity at the old house black too but it wasn't a flat paint. Now I must warn you no holes were pounded in the walls by me ....yet. I have used all the holes made by the previous owner until I repaint. So I had to make things do.
Then think about this... and those of you who have kids can appreciate this. You are in the bathroom for your moment of solitude during the day and WHAM!!!! the door pops open in comes the kids to ask a question that just could not wait until you came out. Now look closely at the toilet picture. Does it look like the door would miss you.... NOOOOOOOOO..... it slams open and hits you in the knees. OUCH!!!!! LOL. Just at normal open the door comes open enough to touch the toilet. And of course we have the painted wood floors to contend with. I love wood floors don't get me wrong, but for the little man in my life sometimes that toilet was too high or the aim was off not sure which. The woodwork is a weird grey color to go with the lavendar walls, but the front of the door is white. WHAT????? I have no idea what they were thinking. LOL. But don't you just love the solid wood door. I would love to try to scrape the paint off and go natural wood, but not sure if hubby will let me. All my baseboards are 8 inches high too. That about sums up the first stop in our tour of the Olde Farmhouse. Hope you enjoyed your visit... and when we move on to other rooms at least you'll know where the bathroom is if you need it. LOL.
